Emulation News 036: Updates for 4-29-11


Happy Friday and hope you have a great weekend! Don't forget to check out today's emulation news! ^_^
Atari800 v2.2.1


"** 2.2.1 released on 2011-04-28

2011-04-28 Petr Stehlik
* configure.ac: generalization for sound configuration

* ui.c, videomode.c, sdl/input.c: slight optimization for snprintf()

* monitor.c, rdevice.c, screen.[ch], sio.c, ui.c, ui_basic.c, util.c,
videomode.c: replace unsafe sprintf() with snprintf()

* sdl/input.c: fix for over-optimized LPT TRIG, sprintf() removed

* README.1ST, atari800.spec, DOC/README, DOC/NEWS, atari.h, util/export:
updated for a new release


2011-04-27 Petr Stehlik
* DOC/ChangeLog: blank lines added, "src/" from filenames removed

* ide.c: fixes for IDE emulation from Ivo - fix for
8-bit mode with an odd number of reads and adds a command line option
for enabling CF mode (slightly different from normal HD mode)

* configure.ac: fixes non-SDL sound (example: X11 target) for Linux and BeOS
and also adds support for SDL sound on Falcon and other platforms
(like for example *BSD, which should fix the Debian Atari800 package)

* debian/*: updated for a new release, dropping non-SDL binary packages.


2011-04-23 Kostas Nakos
* android/*: Speed up fileselector on orientation update & bugfix mount/insert"

* New debugger CLI command: DOKE.

MAME Plus! v0.142u2 r4866

"r4865
fixed USE_DRIVER_SWITCH (work again)
r4866
[MAME] Updated to MAME 0.142u2
[MESS] Sync with MESS (rev 11303)"

Raine v0.51.10


"Both :
- gui improvements
- some valgrind fixes (related to memory usage)
- pause the game when loosing focus. Not sure everyone will like this one, it
was done mainly for a live cd, but I'll leave it for now.
- fix black screen in windows when in fullscreen and using overlays + double
buffer (well all those who had fullscreen problems in windows should try
again, this one should have been fixed earlier, but I very rarely use
windows now...).
- Handling of urls in the history file (you can access this by "about this
game").
- some workarounds for compiz in linux (I don't even use compiz anymore now,
but it can be useful !).
- now supports aalib and caca in linux, totally useless, but fun !

neoraine :
- some songs had their 1st 2 seconds cut on some tosec neocd dumps using
indexes, fixed.
- when loading a game working in 304x224, the screen is now totally cleared
when changing the resolution, after the 1st loading animation.
- you won't get anymore errors when saving a game after playing too long in
kof, now the savegames use lists for the uploads and not a limited array.
- ask for neocd bios if it can't be found (mainly useful for osx).

Raine :
- lots of simplifications for writing the drivers. Nothing major, but it makes
drivers shorter and more readable. Maybe one day someone will appreciate
this in the unlikely event where someone wants to add a new driver !
Some of the changes are limited to the megasys1 driver, which was one of the
biggest one.
- screen rotation was broken in cps1/2 (playing with -rol or -ror command line
option to be able to physically rotate the screen !).
- plotting doesn't hang anymore if you try to load it after playing plgirls2
(this one is a bug from version 0.28 and before, a long standing bug !).
- you can now exclude clones from the game selection dialog.
- roms included in a folder inside a zip file are finally accepted now !"
